Wells Cathedral is pleased to offer a free information event on Will writing. This free, no obligation workshop will take place at 3pm on Wednesday 8th October 2014 in the Education Room within the Cathedral.

Alocal solicitor with experience of drafting wills will lead this workshop. Refreshments will be provided and all attendees will be given a free copy of the Wells Cathedral Will Making Guide.
